Undiagnosed, Unscrupulous and Unbeatable chronicles the life of a quick-witted Jewish kid who battled child abuse, manic depression, personality disorder and alcohol to become one of history's greatest and most controversial handball players. Had these issues not been a part of his life, would he still have become a legendary superstar in his sport? Conflict and triumph have many stories, non like the saga of Paul Haber. Charisma and manipulation bolstered his admiration and support by many well-intentioned enablers. Brazen intimidation, unscrupulous conduct and exceptional athleticism accounted for his succession of demoralizing victories over his opponents. His clashes with the very hand that fed him played out in juicy detail in Newsweek, Sports Illustrated, Argosy and Ace magazines as well as newspapers coast-to-coast, including the front page of the Wall Street Journal. Haber was both loved and hated by many but the press and fans salivated over his every appearance. He rose to fame and misfortune upsetting everyone and everything in his path. Multi-millionaire Robert Kendler and others became his unwitting sponsors, providing money and excuses for his irresponsible actions, while applauding his unprecedented string of victories on the handball circuit. The unflappable dark prince of handball was unfazed by authority. Time in jail, probation and commitment to a state mental institution provided colorful gossip but no real changes to the character of the unbeatable champ. Even his lucky escape from the Chicago Mob had little impact on Haber, until later. Four failed marriages and an equal number of fatherless kids made for an interesting challenge for lawyers and court ordered support demands. Haber's callous disregard for responsibility equally matched his disdain for his opponents in handball.
